Street Outreach

The Problem

No matter where homeless people go they are treated like social outcasts - even support services designed to serve them treat them as welfare clients. The experience is institutionalizing and debilitating.

It becomes very clear to someone who is homeless 'this is who you are' and 'this is where you fit.' There is no grey area, homeless people simply don't belong.

True homelessness is about this experience of being an 'outsider,' of being lonely and having no one in your life.

Street Outreach Program

A group of volunteers from Rebeccas Commmunity maintain connections with homeless people in cities around Australia, through regular contact we build connectedness.

Our gatherings on the street help break down the social barriers and offer an experience of being welcomed, accepted and believed in.

We strive to:
Accept their individuality,
Believe in their worth,
Hope for their future, and
Love them where they are.
